Chimney fires happen every year and more often than you'd probably suspect. It's incredibly important that you're chimney is prepped and ready for a fire and that you are safely and properly maintaining the fire once lit. 

Prior to using your chimney you should get it professionally inspected.. This will ensure that your flute is working properly and everything is safe and ready to go!

Once you have the OK, here are a few tips to safely enjoy fires all winter long!

  • Burn fires that are proportionality sized for YOUR fire place. This makes it much easy to have the fire under control!
  • ONLY burn proper wood and materials. Plastic and styrofoam should never be burned within a fire- especially indoors. 
  • Make sure there is a significant draft when burning a fire. However, be weary when choosing to light a fire on especially windy days. The draft may cause smoke to linger within your house rather than up and out of the chimney. 

If you suspect your fireplace is a hazard or you've lit a fire that has become to large to handle, you should call 911 to properly handle the situation. 

If you or someone you know has suffered the unfortunate instance of fire damage, allow us to take care of the damage and work to make it "Like it never even happened."
